Subject: Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai
For all those who haven't seen Meike Mitsuru's outstanding GLAMOROUS LIFE OF SACHIKO HANAI, the film will be released on dvd WITH English subtitles in Japan.
Release date will be the 28th of April.
As running time we have 90min. listed, but i have no further information if any cuts have been made. If i am not wrong the director's cut has been exactly as long as the running time on the upcoming dvd.
For those of you not familiar with this movie, it was one of the two indies films I really wanted to see this past year (along with TOKYO ZOMBIE which is fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!). Plot: a young woman named Sachiko Hanai accidentally gets involved in a plot to sell George Bush's finger to terrorist groups (it can activate codes to launch missles after all). Without spoiling it too much, Sachiko ends up with the finger. With which she decides to have... "relations" at one point. Truly one of the most talked about scenes in all of Japanese indies moviedom this year. What it makes up for in realism, it makes up in erotica and humor. This is definitely on my list for MUST-BUY DVDs. I'll help anyone who wants, obtain it. Just ask.
